Representative Sarah Pebworth
  Representing: Blue Hill, Brooklin, Brooksville, Castine, Sedgwick and Surry
District #133

Rep. Sarah Pebworth is serving her second term in the Maine House. She is a member of the Legislature’s Labor and Housing Committee, as well as the Innovation, Development, Economic Advancement and Business Committee. 

The former owner of the Blue Hill Inn, Pebworth serves as president of the Blue Hill Public Library’s board of directors and organizes an annual literary festival, “Word,” for the Blue Hill community. She earned a bachelor’s degree in education with an English major and Spanish minor from the University of Wisconsin—Madison, and her Master of Education from the University of Massachusetts—Amherst.

As a lawmaker, Pebworth works to improve the lives of Mainers through a focus on problem prevention – not just problem solving – to ensure Mainers are ready to learn, work or retire successfully.

She and her partner, Julie Jo Fehrle, a freelance artist, live in Blue Hill. The two support the French game of pétanque as members of the Maine Boules Club.
